Two Year Olds
While your child is in our care, they will go though many developmental stages that will help them grow and learn new tasks in their lives. This is the age at which children begin to understand and exert their independence. By now, you may be familiar with the phrase “No, I do it!” This is the two-year-old motto. During this time we begin teaching self-help skills so children feel empowered to care for themselves and their environment. The classroom has a limited number of rules that help ensure the safety of the students, such as: gentle touches with friends and materials; walking feet inside; listening ears (i.e., shoes on, feet on the floor); and, helping hands.
Milestones: potty training; hand washing; teeth brushing; self-serving at meals; and, dressing themselves.
Parents will receive a daily updates about their day on the brightwheel app. Outside the room you will find a parent information board that will inform you of our daily schedule, menus, along with information about our weekly curriculum.
Children in this age group are either in the process of potty training or are potty trained.
*NOTE: Children are placed in classes based on development not age.
